We are deeply saddened of the passing of a great man from a wonderful family. George and Pamela took me into their home in a time of need, and I will always cherish that memory. The Rion family will always be in our thoughts and hearts.

Dear Beth and Family, Please accept my most sincere condolences on the passing of your Father. If he was anything like Beth, I'm sure he filled your hearts with joy, always made you feel special, had a huge smile, and was ready with a joke. May you find comfort being with family and sharing memories as you lay Mr. Rion to rest. Many Blessings to you. Sincerely, Katie Denny, Augustana Class of 1999

My Dearest Commish: My heart aches with you and your entire extended family - by blood, marriage or choice! You have always been, and will forever be, my favorite cousin-in-love. You and George teamed up and made the Rion Family Tree so much more vibrant in color; exotically delicious in flavor and, most importantly (to me), your sunny personalities radiated love so intense - the rest of us sought respite under the collective Family Tree's canopy of cover, as you magically made it feel safe, comfortable and made-in-the-shade cool. Please know you are loved by so many people whose lives are better because you and George made it so. I love you and pray for you to receive unending Grace, Strength and Peace whenever you need it most and want to spread it around to loved ones who may need it more. Tom XXOO
